How do deployments work?
ArtifactsCreate deployable artifacts with build plans, just like always. Any artifacts you wish to deploy with Bamboo need to be "shared".
ReleaseAny artifacts that have been tested to your satisfaction using a plan can be used to create a release. Bamboo preserves metadata related to your release, such as the JIRA issues and commits included. This allows for tracking changes across environments, easy traceability when troubleshooting, and creating powerful reports.
EnvironmentsDefine environments in Bamboo to reflect the development, testing and production environments in your IT infrastructure. At any point in time, you'll be able to see which version of a release is running in each environment, when and who deployed it and what release it replaced.
